. >>> welcome back, everybody. you're watching our special coverage of the election live from washington, d.c. this morning. with less than 24 hours to go, the candidates are focusing on the biggest prizes. those elusive swing states. right now, cnn has pennsylvania lean obama but both campaigns are fighting for the key stone state. today president obama is deploying bill clinton there, for four campaign stops. just one day after mitt romney took the state in pennsylvania, the theme from "rocky." pat toomey is a republican senator from pennsylvania. he campaigned with both romney and paul ryan this weekend. he joins us this morning. nice to see you, sir. thanks for talking with us. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> appreciate that. we've heard sort of mixed messages on the state of pennsylvania. so lay it out for me. listen to republicans, they say pennsylvania is definitely in play. if you talk to the democrats, david plouffe said it's a sign of desperation to talk about pennsylvania. let me play for you what he said and then we'll answer that on the other side. >> we have a great
access to two of the most powerful and respected men in washington, form er head of the cia. it was kelley who unintentionally exposed his affair and cost him his job as cia director. and then the messages she traded with general john allen, now the focus of his own investigation. tom fuentes is a cnn contributor and former assistant director of the fbi. welcome, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> so kelley san honorary consulate to south korea. now they may fire her if events warrant. this is just getting embarrassing. >> well, i don't know exactly what they're firing her from since that really is a pretty meaningless term in the first place. if she gets demoted from some position that almost means nothing, so what? >> it's hard to understand all of these terms. honorary consulate means she helps the south koreans set up appear parties and stuff? she introduces them to people in the united states? do you know what an honorary consulate is? >> not exactly. diplomatic status is invoked by the host country, like south korea saying this person would be working in your country and
the sampling era. another new national poll. this one is from abc and the "washington post," gives obama a one-point lead. nbc also finds romney's nationalability at 53% to obama's 54%. you need to wear a warm jacket and gloves if you plan to take part in early voting here in ohio. at some polling places, the lines were as far as the eye can see. i've never seen anything like this as voters waited to take part in early voting. i went out to check out one of the polling places here in columbus. this is the end of the line here in franklin county where they're allowed to vote 1:00 to 5:00 today. it circles all wait around here. there are a couple circles. i hope you guys aren't getting dizzy. then it's going to snake around all the way through the parking lot, another circle and all the way through. one of the guys we've been trying to talk to here is mark. mark, how long have you been in line? >> oh, we just got in line. we have no idea how long this will take. >> when you saw that line, what did you think? >> i thought it ended here at the start of the building until a woman was screaming, end
's a woman and has access and writes a book ab a man in washington is not reason enough to think there was more than that and given his reputation, his moral character, how many respect him at such a high level here in washington and even as director in the cia, there were sometimes personality clashes. sources that told me between him and the number two in charge who the president has asked to step up in that number one role. more sort of his mind set in the way he felt things should be downed, so people are stunned. >> fred, given the timing of it, that this has come just a week before he was supposed to testify about the benghazi situation, which now he isn't, but we have some news on that in just a few moments, what was his relationship with president obama? >> i'm told that a coweuple of years ago when he was still commander in afghanistan, there was tension with members in the white house staff. when they were reviewing the options on whether to put in more troops, options to box the president in. i've been told in the last couple of years that relations are very good with
. it is tuesday, november 6th, election day. "starting point" is coming to you live from washington, d.c., and we begin right now. >> welcome, everybody, you're watching a special edition of starting point and cnn's live coverage of election day 2012. the two candidates have been talking for about 17 months now and now it's the american people who will have the final say. these are the states with polls that are opening right now. state of delaware, state of florida, state of georgia, illinois, kansas, louisiana, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, pennsylvania, rhode island, south carolina, tennessee, and washington, d.c. you're looking at a live picture now from wilmington, delaware, where joe biden is expected to vote at any moment. the vice president then will head to chicago to watch the returns with president obama today. mitt romney is not letting up on this election day. he's added two campaign campaign stops today in cleveland, ohio, and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. there are already legal issues that are plaguing two battleground states. state of florida, where there are more l
was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside. only from the outside. let's make sure and give him that chance, okay? >> morrisville, pennsylvania will hear that same message later on this hour and right now vice presidential candidate paul ryan is speaking in minneapolis. >> the five of us, we're in congress together. president obama has not met with the republican leaders in the house or the senate since july. >> boo! >> we have a debt crisis coming, we have budget problems, we have economic problems. that's not leadership. we need a leader. now the reason mitt romney and i keep talking about our five-point plan is because we believe we owed you our fellow citizens an actual plan. we owe you solutions, we owe you ideas. real reforms can be had to get a real recovery. we had real recovery in this state in this country let's use that recovery and put people back to work. let's get the keystone pipeline, let's get more gas, more coal and renewables. i tell you what, we know what layoffs are, we have family and friends that we know of who are in their 40s or
-- more of the same. athena jones, cnn, washington. >>> and cnn newsroom continues with fred. >> have a great day. >> i'm going to go home and turn back my clock before i forget. >> that's right. we'll see you an hour earlier tomorrow. thanks so much. appreciate that. the countdown is on indeed. election day is just three days away now. the presidential candidates are making a huge final push in the battleground states. today president obama campaigns in ohio, wisconsin, iowa and virginia. mitt romney stumping in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. they're running mates are also going nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand.
with all these challenges that are known in washington as the fiscal cliff, but to the rest of the country they're known about fairness to middle class families who are trying to basically have a tax code that works for them, rather than against them. health care and retirement security, and there will be reforms in changes. you also have to have a president that has the right values for the middle class, and i can go back to remembering what happened in 1996. we had a healthy debate. nine months later we had a balanced budget agreement, and it was different because the president of the united states was able to lead, and i think with the house democrats, there are races throughout the country as there are in the senate, and i think they are very, very close, and i think on a close election there may be a little push where i think president strengthens. >> just two words. compatriot in arms, at least in this election. david axelrod said he is utterly confident of victory. are you? >> david is close to it, people know a basic core point. the president has shown the leadership over four year
election express bus. i'm also joined by john king in washington, d.c. the electoral college map, how does it add up right now? >> when you talk to the two campaigns, it's as if even though it's one country, they live in parallel universes. both saying they will win tomorrow. the president is ahead in most of the key battleground states. they are down confidence in the obama campaign and don't get too much dispute out of the romney campaign that they will win the state of nevada. then they come to the midwest where you are. they are most confident in the midwest they will carry again. i know republicans watching are saying they'll prove you wrong. they're confident about the state of iowa. that would get the president to 259. takes 270 win. when you ask them about these battleground states, they say they're most confidence about ohio, where you are. the president took that game over. no republicans won the white house without it, but say they're wrong about it. keep it a toss-up. if this happens, if the president won novembevada, iowa wisconsin, could romney get to 270? yes, barely. give f

as washington, d.c., predominantly palestinian and employment is bad. globalfirepower.com has called israel the tenth most popular military in the world. compulsory military service. every young person must go into the moilitary for a while and they have a half million that they can call from the reserves very quickly. ground forces also very impressive. if you count the artillery pieces and mortar, you can get 12,000 forces on the ground. 800 aircraft out there, including some 200 helicopters. this is largely what they used to have these strikes within gaza. now, if you look at hamas, their forces are much smaller in terms of their official forces certainly. if you look at people who are really in uniform, soldiers, police, whatever you want to call it. 12,500. they have nothing like the weapons the israelis have. palestinian militants do have lots and lots of rockets. and i want to bring in a model of one of them here. this is a kasam 2. these rockets are popular because they're cheap, they're easy to make out of steel tubes. only weigh 70 to 100 pounds and fueled by commercial grade fert
unscrupulous credit card lenders. there's some things we don't want washington to do. the politicians in washington most of whom are male to control health care decisions that women can make for themselves. now, for eight years, we had a president who shares these beliefs, his name was bill clinton. and you know, his economic plan, when he first came into office, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more so we could reduce our deficit and still invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know what? at the time, the republicans in congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney, i don't want you to boo, i want you to vote. i want you to vote. but a republican candidate by the name of mitt romney said, bill clinton's plans would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out his math was just as bad then as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so florida, we know that our ideas work. we also know that their
%, but that was in the sampling error. this one from washington, d.c. and the "washington post" has the candidates locked in a tie at 48%, also with a margin of error. the polls find romney's favorability at 53%, just shy of obama's 54% rating. so how close are president obama and mitt romney in the electoral race? we have an interactive way for you to keep track and to see your ballot before you actually cast a vote. josh lez is here with more on that. josh? >> obviously they both want to win the popular vote. as we know also, this is an electoral race. sometimes you tease me on line about how i move things all over the screen, i'm here to show you one you can do that's full of hard facts. the first thing i want you to see is where things stand in the electoral race to the presidency, to that magic number of 270. we have this up for you at cnn.com/election. you can go to each state and see how many electorals there are in each state and how it will play out when it starts coming in. a brand new incredible map i want to show you. this is cnn.com/explorer. this will help you get a sense of how massive this race ha

storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to fi

out of. for example, we think that folks in washington, especially men, should not try to control health care choices that women are perfectly capable of making themselves. >> now, madison, we had a president that shared these beliefs. his name was bill clinton. when he first came into office, his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more so we could reduce our deficit and still invest in the skills and ideas of our people, and at the time the republican congress and a certain senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy, would kill jobs, would hurt the job creators. does this sound familiar? turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs. incomes were up. port was down. our deficit had turned into a surplus. so, wisconsin, our ideas have been tested. we've tried them. they worked. the other side's ideas have also been tested. they didn't work so well. after bill clinton left office during most of the last

. romney wrote about bipartisanship. he says i am offering a contrast to what we're seeing in washington today. we watched as one party has pushed through its agenda without compromising with the other party. there's much gridlock and pettiness dominating while important issues facing the nation while high unemployment go unaddressed. the bickering has to end. i will end it. i will reach across the aisle to solve america's problems. >> you can read their complete opinions by logging on to our website. go to cnn.com/opinion. then go to my facebook page and tell me who you think has the most compelling vision for america's vision. we'll actually read back some of your responses at facebook.com/suzannemalveaux. >>> vice president joe biden back from the battleground state of wisconsin. he says he is stumping on the opposition home court. stansville, wisconsin, that is paul ryan's hometown just about 20 minutes north of beloit. you're looking at live pictures where the vice president is going to be speaking shortly. biden's visit comes just today after the president's trip to green bay, and
's when he started talking about ending politics as we know it in washington, et cetera. it's coming back to where it all began. he's landed. air force one is here. the first lady's plane has also landed at the airport. the president is greeting her at the airport, they'll arrive here together. there will be a performance from bruce springsteen and a speech here with a lot of the old campaign gang rejoining the team for a final good-bye, anderson. >> what's he doing tomorrow? we know mitt romney is having campaign events tomorrow. is the president not doing that? and why? >> you know, traditionally, first of all, he has not campaigned on election day, it's not his ritual. and he's not going to break ritual. what he'll do tomorrow is play basketball. they have this history, there was one campaign, one election day they did not play basketball. that was that primary against hillary clinton in new hampshire that he lost. and so they always say, they now play basketball every single election day, and that's their rule. >> is that for real? are they really that superstitious? >> oh, yeah. oh,
. >> he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance in a day or two. >> millions of people have already voted for one candidate or the other. early voting, though, has been a blessing and a curse. in ohio, in florida, limited hours made for long lines over the weekend, could make for post-election legal battles if either state is pivotal and close. a very real possibility. there is a lot of excitement out there, though, tonight. we are just hours away from the final day of this election, of this campaign. it's up to you now, the voters, to decide. we are going to try to bring you all the excitement and energy that is out there tonight with live remarks from the presidential candidates and vice presidential candidates as they make them. tonight in the hour ahead and again when we're live at 10:00. the polling remains close enough that the romney campaign has secured two rallies for tomorrow, election day, one in cleveland, ohio. the other in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. in cleveland, you would expect, given the polling. pittsbu
. what's decided here, the balance of power here will have a huge impact on what gets done in washington over the next four years. let's take our camera up high and show you the current balance. the republicans have 47 seats in red here, you see that strip of blue in the back? that is the democratic advantage. when you include the independent senators who caucus with the democrats they had 53 seats and that gives them the majority. also, they have the white house, with president obama, of course. and the republicans have one strong hold, that is the u.s. house of representatives where they have the majority. if nothing changes here, and president obama gets re-elected, what can we expect to see here in the u.s. senate? well, a lot of the same maneuvering and bickering as we've seen before, i imagine. but also, a new agenda. one of the first things on president obama's agenda, higher taxes on the wealthy. he talked about this as making the economy more fair and getting it moving again. here's another item, immigration reform. he took a lot of heat not getting this done the first time afte
own, deadlocked at 49. abc news and washington post. same thing. at the bottom, pew research center, they have the president with a three-point edge, within the sampling error. let's go beyond the top lines and talk about enthusiasm. that could be so crucial. do you get your supporters out to the poll? our poll indicates that republicans are just as enthusiastic about polling as are democrats. and only 4% said they could still change their mind. their mind is made up but they could still be persuaded to change. it could be crucial if a very close contest. >> what about those swing states? it's all coming down to the swing states, as everybody says. >> reporter: it is all about the swing states. 270 electoral votes needed. let's start in ohio. take a look at the latest numbers. our poll from last week had the president with a three-point advantage. let's go to florida, 29 electoral votes at stake here, two very different polls here, nbc has the president with a slight two-point edge. but look at mason dixon, romney with a six-point lead. and numbers in virginia, look at these very, v
correspondent paul steinhauser joins us from his home base in washington. yesterday you were in pennsylvania covering a paul ryan rally. what do you think is the message for the challengers? >> we're hearing change. change and change. remember four years ago president obama ran on the mantle of hope and change. romney finished up at a rally out in colorado. another one of those eight battleground states we keep talking about. and what mitt romney is saying do you want another four years of under president obama or do you want something a little different? here's part of what he said. >> change can't be measured in speeches. it is measured in achievements. and four years ago, four years ago candidate obama promise dodd so very much, but he's fallen so very short. you recall. he promised he'd be a post-partisan president but he's been most partisan. dividing, attacking, blaming. >> you know, at this late hour here it's all about the ground game. it's about the candidates making sure their supporters actually vote. randi, we heard from both campaigns. the obama campaign telling us they've reach
was right when he said he can't change washington from the inside. you can take him at his word. that's why we're going to send him outside. all right? when i'm elected i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with their leaders. i'm going to endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle who care more about the country than they do about politics. and together, we're going to put the nation back on track to a balanced budget and to reform our tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. now, if the president were to be re-elected he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he would send billions more to his favorite friends and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to middle class families in this country. we can help hold down prices in the pump and grow new energy jobs and n
into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election is all about. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008 when we talked about change, i told i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about c
is under way at a military base in washington state. it will determine whether robert bales should be tried for murder in the shooting deaths of 16 afghan civilians. that was back in march. >>> police are looking for a skateboarder who robbed a bank in carlsbad, california. investigators say the man dressed in the all black handed a teller a note yesterday. there's a picture of him there, demanding an undisclosed amount of money. the teller complied. no one was hurt. investigators say witnesses didn't spot a weapon. but they have his mug. right, soledad, did you see that? >> yes. and he's on a skateboard. my guess is they'll wrap up the case pretty soon. >>> keep it right here on cnn, our special live election coverage begins tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern. cnn's wolf blitzer has a preview. and apparently he does not have a preview. obviously a little problem with the tape of wolf. but basically tonight is where you want to be watching cnn's coverage. coming up this morning on our special election day edition of "early start," who will win or will we have a winner at all, will the results be
to affect their vote. in an abc news/washington post poll 47% believe romney would do a better job hand mg the economy. romney is more likely to improve the job situation compared to 42% for president barack obama. paul, i know you love these numbers. it's down to the wire now. i have the campaign schedule. it's crazy. what do they have planned on the final days to the race? >> it's all about location, location, location in the final four days of campaigning before the election. look at the map and where the president will be. look at the map and you get a sense of ohio, ohio, ohio is pretty important. the president making a number of stops in ohio and iowa. he's going end his campaign in iowa. this is the place where he got his first victory in january, 2008. if you look at the map for romney as well, a lot in ohio as well. other states there, one in particular is pennsylvania. he will be there spending one day over the weekend and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >
washington this morning. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> let's talk about these new laws put in place in many states across the nation. how will this affect voting tuesday? >> in 2011, the brennan center issued a report. when we first saw the onslaught of these laws being introduced across the country. we were extremely worried because it looked like up to 5 million voters would be impacted by these laws in such a way where many of them might have their right to vote encumbered. we issued a new report, however, a year later. it just came out last week -- early this week that showed that because of the pushback that happened across the country, because of the department of justice, citizen referenda, court and other initiatives, there has been a great deal of success in pushingi inin ining respect to these laws. that number is far fewer in terms of how many voters will be impacted. most courts have ruled where there has been litigation that these laws will not go into effect before the november 6th election. we are very hopeful and very exuberant about the fkt that many more v
. freezes job growth. i think the president was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance. [ cheers and applause ] that's his way. my way is quite different. when i'm elected, i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with leaders in both parties. and i'm going to endeavor to find good men and good women on both sides of the aisle that care more about the country than they do about politics. and they're there, and we can make that happen. now, there's no question but you know that regardless of what he says, if the president gets re-elected, he's going to continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. i have a very different path. when i'm elected, we're going to change course on energy to build jobs, to help put the price at the pump. we're going to achieve north american energy independence in eight years. if the president were to be re-elected, i'm convinced he will continue to crush small business with his plan to raise taxes on them. to force
of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> so that's mitt romney in roanoke, virginia, today. gloria, let's just look at the latest swing state polling. they're showing iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin, they're all leaning toward obama. we showed another poll yesterday showing the president leading ohio, back to ohio, by five points. point-blank, gloria borger, five days left, is time running out for mitt romney? >> sure. there's five days left f. you look out those polls, while most of them are within the margin of error, he would like to have it flipped the other way. having said that, time's also running out for the president. look. this is a tight race. it's tighter than a lot of people ever expected. it's come down to those handful of states. and what it really comes down to is getting the voters to the polls, brooke. that's why there's an emphasis on early voting because you can bus your voters who you know vote for you and get them to vote early. but it's a matter of intensity and enthusiasm and, you know, when you talk to the romney people, they're complaining the polls based on the
happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, certainly not the people whose power is out and they're dealing with the hurricane damage and stuff like that. but evidence is pretty clear that people get a general impression of the economy as opposed to looking and sayingering well, this was 171,000 and it was expected to be 125,000 so therefore i'm going to be
in washington with mitt romania any who is going to work with your governor, with your senator, to do things that will get more jobs for ohio and get this economy turned around and get those people back to work instead of having a $1 trillion welfare economy that nobody is happy with. people want to go back to work. >> let talk about your home state of virginia, coveted prize certainly for both candidates what. makes the romney campaign think that they can capture virginia at this point? >> well, we are leading in virginia with independents, just like we are leading in ohio and everywhere, and in virginia we're very concerned about, first of all, the president's tax increases are going to hit our economy just like they are going to hit ohio very hard. two-earner families are going to get hit hard and our small businesses will get hit hard. we have a big small tech industry and the tax increases will put our small businesses in jeopardy at the same time it -- >> let me interrupt you here -- virginia unemployment though is among the lowest in the country at 5.6%, so how will you combat that? >

. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we
